Experience true food for your hair and skin with real, nutrient-dense, traditionally handcrafted soap made with old-fashioned ingredients. Our artisanal shampoo soaps are handmade with carefully curated local, grass-fed, pasture-raised, and organic ingredients – proudly sourced from small family farms and homegrown here in the USA. What we can’t source locally, we seek the highest quality: certified organic, minimally processed, and fair-trade ingredients to feed your hair and skin from the outside-in. No detergents or surfactants are used in any of our shampoos.
When washing properly, our basic unscented formula is suitable for all hair types used as-needed with an optional conditioner. Some scents and additional ingredients on top of our basic formula may alter results for each individual.
Top 3 Tips for Beginners:
Please keep in mind that scent information in this product’s scent tab is based on majority feedback.
Beginners, we recommend trying our unscented shampoo soaps first for the freshest, cleanest, and most simple start. Beginners will also want to educate themselves on the possibility of a short detox period and the correct washing technique.
Our All-In-One Shampoo – Body – Shaving soap bars are also suitable for regular body washing, face washing (facial soap directions here), and shaving (shaving directions here). Our ingredients are LOW on the comedogenic scale – so your pores are nourished and cleansed, but never clogged.
Ingredient Details (read full ingredients list in this product’s ingredients tab)
Pasture-Raised, Pure, Hand-Rendered USA Lard feeds your hair and skin extra-nourishing balanced fatty acids and the world’s highest Vitamin D3 content, second only to cod liver oil. Lard has been used in haircare since medieval times for hair growth and hair health management. Our lard is carefully hand-rendered to keep its precious rare nutrients in-tact. Learn more here
Local, Raw, Farm-Fresh, Grass-fed, Hand-Cultured Buttermilk to feed your hair the perfect food – high in essential vitamins, minerals, proteins, and fatty acids. Full-fat Jersey cow buttermilk is higher than goat milk in lactic acid and has the same moisturization content. The famously beautiful Egyptian Queen Cleopatra was a wise proponent, bathing in fresh buttermilk daily. Learn more here
Certified Organic Babassu Oil provides an extra foamy lather to build mounds of thick bubbles. This makes cleansing your hair an easier task without using pore-clogging palm or coconut oils. Babassu oil also helps maintain the hardness of your shampoo soap while in use and makes the bar last as long as possible in wet environments.
Certified Organic, Cold-Pressed, Extra-Virgin Olive Oil has been used for thousands of years to make the best soaps in the world and is one of the major components of our shampoo bars. Olive oil provides a rich, smooth, silky shine to hair shafts while also retaining a mild, gentle cleanse. Olive oil is unique in that it’s very moisturizing, but not heavy.
Certified Organic, Hexane-Free Castor Oil has been used for centuries to help heal damaged skin while also restoring new hair growth.* Also known as the “Palm of Christ”, its many priceless uses have yet to be overshadowed by any other known oil. Castor oil also helps to provide a thick, robust, and stable lather, while additionally strengthening the hair shafts and reducing split ends.
Certified Organic Golden Jojoba Oil is actually a type of liquid plant wax that is claimed to be very similar to our skin’s sebum, providing a light moisturization without clogging pores. Jojoba oil has been very useful for haircare professionals, lending extra shine, strength, and manageability to hair health.
Abyssinian Oil is very similar to Argan oil but shown to be better in some ways. From multiple scientific studies, Abyssinian oil has been shown to provide superior protection against hair breakage and heat damage in professional salon settings. Shine and manageability are also markedly improved when incorporating Abyssinian oil into one’s haircare routine.
Kaolin Clay helps detox your hair from the daily grime and air pollution from modern day living while also soothing and nourishing the scalp with trace minerals. This natural earthen clay assists with dandruff and encourages hair growth as well. For shaving, it lends an extra silky-smooth experience, but if a nick does occur – it helps stop and repair bleeding quickly. Just lather our soap on the area you need to shave and shave as you would normally (full shaving directions here).
Mica Mineral Pigments
A very small amount of Cosmetic-Grade Mica Mineral Pigments helps each soap look unique and attractive in their own special color for a fun experience! This also lessens confusion between other soaps during use. Will not clog pores, or stain surfaces. This is the same main ingredient in natural cosmetic make-ups.
Phthalate-Free and Paraben-Free Fragrance Oils are included for a familiar and comforting scent. Did you know that most body care shoppers make their purchase decisions based solely on scent satisfaction? The olfactory system is directly related to emotions and memories, which is why scents are such an important factor for many. Please keep in mind that not including phthalates and parabens will reduce the scent hold, decreasing the linger time and strength compared to what many are used to with store-bought products.

Don’t settle for anything less than the absolute best for your hair and skin

Manufacture Date: 10/27/2022
Best By Date: 10/27/2025
Store in a room-temperature, dry place out of direct sunlight.
We recommend using within 1 year of first use for best results, as scents and contents fade and break down faster over time once disturbed.
On average, 1 shampoo soap will last most experienced users around 2 weeks of daily use, or about 14 washes on average.
Hair length, thickness, texture, and level of oil/grease/dirt to cleanse will affect this number. The longer, thicker, dirtier, and more textured your hair is, the more you will need to apply for a good wash.
Another beginner’s adjustment is not properly washing (not applying and lathering enough), which causes soap residue in certain places and feels much like the detox symptoms. Here is our article about how to wash properly: https://perma-earth.com/directions/soap-directions/

Great lather, per usual! The scent is one of my favorites, fruit-like but not the overwhelming artificial fruity scents you get from most drugstore shampoos. My curls like this one too, lots of volume and soft coils. P.E. shampoo bars also allow me to brush out my hair AFTER it’s dried, if you’re a fellow curly headed person you know how wild this can be! (Hair type– fine hair strands, natural curls, medium to high volume, slightly past shoulder length).

I’ve tried quite a few scents and I love them all but, I think this one is my favorite. There’s other scents I want to try but, I can’t get away from this one, it’s that good. It’s fresh, spring/summery but, also reminds me of the holidays, strong scented but, light at the same time. My hair smells really nice but, it’s not overwhelming at the same time. It leaves my hair feeling soft and it looks so shiny.

I have tried a lot of different scents which I love as well but Out of them all Pearberry is my most favorite! My hubby likes it too. I haven’t been able to get him to use them on his hair yet but he likes to wash his body with it. Love all the bars and how much they lather and the way my hair feels so clean. I’ve been using the bars for a couple months now and my hair is now fully detoxed, I have more volume, and don’t have to wash my hair but every couple days!!! And with oily prone hair this is a testament of how awesome these products are! My hair is so soft And not oily at all! I’ve tried other natural shampoos and never could stand the detox process but these bars clean my hair so well that the detoxing was way more manageable and within a few weeks I noticed a big difference. The dry shampoo helped as well, and a lemon juice rinse. But now I can use the conditioner bars instead of lemon juice and my hair comes out even softer. Love Love Love these products!!!

I’ve been cleaning up my household products to be more natural and I was having such a hard finding hair products that I trusted until I found Perma Earth! I love that they are animal based products.
I got this shampoo bar for my girls. They LOVE the smell. It’s a bit of a learning curve to start using this shampoo but I was able to teach my 7 & 8 year old how to use them. Their hair does great with this shampoo! I’m so thankful for a safe product for my girls hair. They don’t have to have as many years using all the crazy chemicals that are found in generic shampoos. We love this company!

I don’t think the scent is strong at all ! It’s leaves a very light pear smell on your hair. My boys love it! I love how soft my skin feels after using it. Worked great for shaving as well! I am sold on this product and look forward to trying many more for me and my family.

I keep trying new bars and then end up finding new “favorites!” This is certainly one of those new favorites. The smell is so amazing. I’ve never had an issue with any of the shampoo bars I have tried not working well on my hair (after the initial learning curve), and this bar is no different. My bathroom smells so nice after using this bar in the shower which is also a plus!

This shampoo bar smells delicious like candy. The scent didn’t stay long in my hair. I saved the shampoo bar on my vanity table after a shower, and the scent was still lovely for a few hours. This is my third shampoo and I didn’t had to use much shampoo like last time. My hair is shiny, and my scalp is clean. I love perma-earth because it help me enjoy shampooing my hair; it doesn’t feel like a chore. (Instagram @soymarigold)
